Went twice; once for lunch, and a dinner

The food was really good, the wine as well. Though I enjoyed the lunch more, maybe because we were sitting outside for that. Really nice surroundings!

One of you must order the degustazione menu to get a full sampling of the amazing wines of the Rascoli. The menu though limited has wonderful offerings. Make sure to call for reservation to avoid conflict with special events

Stopped off here whilst touring Tuscany but the staff were too busy preparing for an evening event to serve lunch. There aren't a great number of options around about so had to have a quick drink before moving on.

I booked this restaurant from the reviews on this site and what a great experience, the food and wines were amazing. We had the four course menu starting with an appetiser which had an incredible truffle sauce. The second dish was tortellini, third had three meats, the lamb was a stand out for me and then followed by dessert which... More

We had an amazing experience at this place. Starting by the Staff. The 4 course meal with the wine harmonization was the best food we've had in tuscany. Among all the other fancy wine restaurants we've had lunch so far, osteria del castello was remarkable. Perfect walk up to the castle with a beautiful view!

In all my travels to Italy, this was the worse meal I have had. The pasta was over cooked and soggy on the ends. It tasted like they cooked the pasta and then let it sit outside for 2 hours. The sauce also paired poorly. Their are many wonderful places to try. This is not one of them.

Nice restaurant half way up to Castello Brolio, serving of course there own nice wines, accompanied with nice dishes! Walk from the restaurant to the Castello Brolio (you have to pay to visit the castle) - there is very limited parking space next to the castle, so best to leave your car next to the restaurant. You can complete your... More

We ate here as part of a wine tour and tasting at the Barone Ricasoli vineyard. The restaurant is lovely, they have both indoor and outdoor seating. The menu was preset (as part of the tour we purchased) yet, everything was fresh, tasty and well-prepared. A few stray cats roam the outdoor area, looking for handouts, however, it wasn't a... More

Mamma mia! We had a perfect meal combined with 4 different wines selected from Ricasoli grapes. The atmosphere was very nice we didin't get the 4 course menu but we would recommend the little pig with slices of apple and vegetables and the zucchini vellutata delicious. In Toscany is a must!
